Pumpout Nav, a free iOS and Android app for boaters, has expanded to Washington. Boaters can now use the interactive tool to find nearly 200 pumpout and portable toilet dump stations in Washington, in addition to hundreds of pumpout and floating restroom facilities in Oregon and California.
Pumpout Nav uses the boater’s location information to suggest the nearest pumpout stations on a map or as a list, helping boaters find the amenities they need and enabling marinas to promote their services. The app displays each facility’s operational status, cost, hours and detailed location within the marina. It also provides instructions on how to use a pumpout station and information about the environmental risks and applicable regulations regarding sewage discharge. Boaters can create a personalized account in the app to log pumpout activity, save their favourite pumpout locations and plan their next pumpout stop. Boaters can use the app to report issues directly to a facility, helping marinas and other waterfront facilities stay on top of repairs.
